Hey ppl, am in a really strange situation,
My pc was working awesome, got a Q 8400 oc to 3.6, Zotac gtx 460, 4 gb ram ddr2, p45 msi board..
The problem arised when i tried to add another 2 gb ram to my setup[got windows 7 ultimate x64], system didnt start up, well obviously at the end, i just removed it, but the problem remained, system just blocked each time on the win 7 loading screen [ the black screen with logo], if i tried to restart then it might just boot well, and everyone down i completely shut down the pc,then at startup, it just hangs again on loading screen. Thats everytime i swith it on. Then it say windows recovered from a serious problem- bluescreen ..124
When system booted well, i checked all the specs, and did some benchmark, results were as before, so all my components are working well, i suppose.
I tried to install win 7 on another disk[500 gb disk bought few days ago], same exact problem !!!

What do you suggest i do ?

NB- GTX 460 , 2 gb ram and hardrive is new, few days old, well they worked well and still do, if wind loads up .

I am reasonably confident that you need to change the brand of ram you are using and make the specifications of the new RAM match exactly with your original RAM. Win 7 is very fussy with its RAM. It may even be that it will work with two but not four Gig of that brand. I have the problem before on a laptop.

It sounds like you have some RAM kits that don't have the same timings and voltages. Different RAM kits don't always play nicely together.

Try running the memory at 2.2 volts and loosen the memory timing of the quicker sticks to match the slower.

Yep , that is did..Stil same thing, will try to update the bios ?

I'd try manually setting the memory timings and voltage before updating.
